  • Details

    The first edition of The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction was recognized by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in the key judgement Mozes v. Mozes as 'the leading treatise on the Convention'.

    The second edition of The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction fully revises and updates the classic first edition, providing a distinct analysis and evaluation of the Convention as a global remedy for international child abductions, as well as offering the most comprehensive and authoritative examination of the core provisions that give rise to problems of interpretation and application in practice.

    Part I will be of interest to all readers seeking a deeper theoretical understanding of the instrument and the role it plays within the overall context of resolving child abductions. It leads readers to an assessment of whether the summary return mechanism remains a viable solution and whether the Convention will be able to endure into the coming decades.

    Part II draws on the strengths of the first edition in subjecting the core provisions and concepts of the Convention to a comparative analysis. Examples are drawn primarily from English language case law, but reference is also made to civil law jurisprudence. Part II will be of particular interest to practitioners specialising in international child abduction cases.
